Getting paid for writing
I have decided I don´t suck at writing technical articles. I am not all that great, but I don´t suck.
And I am quick, too.
So, I have decided I would like to get paid. I tried sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org (they claim to pay for content) but have not gotten even a "no thanks" response. Maybe they are slowish ;-)
Anyone knows any other sources of income for someone who can write decent short technical articles?
I think I will contact LinuxWorld and Linux Journal, but they are a bit too ... high level. You know. Real magazines ;-)
I only mean for this to pay a few bucks, it´s not what I intend on living from ;-)
In the meantime, I will continue writing one or two articles a week, anyway!
You shouldn't under estimate you with Linux Journal. Daniel Coletti (you know him) wrote an IPSec mini-howto for the on-line edition some months ago. And while it wasn't a bad mini-howto, I know you write better (and more edutational stuff) than him.
So go for it. You can start sending an article to the online edition. If it gets enough hits, they usually put it in the printed edition. Or you can ask for money from the beginning :).
follow Dario's advice. at least, you won't worry about the "maybe I could have" issue later on.
Ok, I will. I have already proposed a couple of articles to the LinuxWorld Magazine editor.
After I see what happens, I'll try Linux Journal.
You should try to submit your pyqt articles to Linux Magazine http://www.linux-magazine.com/Writers/General
